Add a new disk or create a new disk partition, with minimum size of 512 MB in the instance (issue instance) where you 

want a separate filesystem for /boot.

# blkid

Add /boot filesystem entry in /etc/fstab. Take UUID from above "blkid" command

# vi /etc/fstab
UUID=<MENTION UUID HERE> /boot xfs defaults,_netdev,_netdev 0 0
